On Balance by Christopher Rave
Christopher Rave's live acid sets have been permeating Sheffield over the last couple of years, but in our opinion this man hasn't been given the platform he deserves.
Built on the fly with synths and drum machines, his tracks are raw and squelchy, returning to a time when dance music was fun and spontaneous. In a world where most 'live' dance sets consist of a man with a hairdo staring at a laptop screen, Chris's spikey, analogue sound is just what the acid doctor ordered.
Peak is his first release, but expect more from this man. While the real joy is seeing him build the tracks in real time, these are still recordings of live takes, with all the happy mistakes and artifacts that come with the live hardware environment.
